Possible false postive 12900 Unrecognized FTP Command

Signature tripping on the following contents. Is this an invalid ftp command? or does the signature need tunning?

AFAICT, "AUTH Kerberos_V5" is valid. see:

Re: Possible false postive 12900 Unrecognized FTP Command

So 129xx sigs... The "recognized" commands are:

user, pass, acct, cwd, cdup, smnt, quit, rein, port, pasv, type, stru, mode, retr, stor, stou, appe, allo, rest, rnfr, rnto, abor, dele, rmd, mkd, pwd, list, nlst, site, syst, stat, help, noop

Which parallel rfc-959. Anything not one of those, should fire 12900, the unrecignized ftp command sig.

RFC 2228 are security extensions to the FTP specifications RFC 959. So while they're legal for some FTP servers, the commands aren't required.

We can argue it either way, and rather than go down that rabbithole, I've provided the list of recognized commands.

What would you recommend for my environment auth is a normal command?

Looks like I am also seeing trigger packets for auth tls.

Thanks
